Learning What Bahá’ís Believe

On June 27th, 2024 representatives from the Baháí faith in Scottsdale, AZ, in collaboration with the Arizona Interfaith Movement, held a forum on the basics of the Baháí doctrine. The following information is a recap of that educational event.

Throughout history, God has sent to humanity a series of divine Educators—known as Manifestations of God—whose teachings have provided the basis for the advancement of civilization. These Manifestations have included Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and Muḥammad. Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of these Messengers, explained that the religions of the world come from the same Source and are in essence successive chapters of one religion from God.

Bahá’ís believe the crucial need facing humanity is to find a unifying vision of the future of society and of the nature and purpose of life. Such a vision unfolds in the writings of Bahá’u’lláh.
